This year’s Armed Forces Day takes pride of place in the heart of Middlesbrough town centre.
The celebration on Saturday, June 17 marks the annual day of recognition, when local communities pay tribute to the wider role our Armed Forces personnel play throughout the UK as well as their involvement in ongoing conflicts around the globe.
A packed programme of military fun, centred on Linthorpe Road and Corporation Road, will run from 10am to 4pm.
Highlights of the day will include an exhibition of military vehicles and motorbikes, a climbing wall, paintballing, face painting, traditional games and much more.
This year’s event also features a very special performance by the Doo Wop Dollies singing all the war time classics as well as a lunchtime tea dance.
Armed Forces Day – formerly known as Veterans’ Day – is supported locally by The Middlesbrough and Teesside Philanthropic Foundation’s Golden Giveaway.
